Hi experts,

I've been tasked with getting our current web app into a BlackBerry app for our customers. Having looked around the dev site I've installed the Visual Studio plugin (as our app is ASP.NET) but now I need some advice on the approach to take. The options I see available are:

1. Program the widget with Google Gears. However, I see that this is deprecated.

2. Use HTML5 instead. However, this is still in it's infancy and not all elements of it are supported even in 5.0

3. Use PhoneGap (I've used this for iPhone dev)

I don't want to go down one avenue only to find I hit brick walls and have to start again. So I would appreciate any advice :-)
